I was raised in the 1950's. Good in some respects to be a teen-ager then, not so good in terms of incredible niavete (sic?) associated with same. Very much miss the energy and feeling like you were ten feet tall and bulletproof....
As a retired purchasing manager with 35 years in procurement, I suppose I should be insulted;
as far back as the late 1980's, my company was using electronic signatures and the latest computer technology. Our engineers were easy targets - all a salesman had to do was to take them to lunch and the next day I'd get a requisition for the salesman's products.
Alas, the purchasing profession is the Rodney Daingerfield of the business world - no respect. Hey Mr. Adams if you want some fresh material I've got some good stories.
